Deadwood meets Cthulhu in this wild and profane Western romp featuring zombies, werewolves, evil spirits, and one pissed-off gunslinging preacher.

The Wild West has never seen the likes of the Reverend Jebidiah Mercer, a hard man wielding a burning Bible in the battle between God and the devil, in an endless struggle he’s not sure he cares who wins. With its five stories laced with fast-paced action, nonstop humor, and spine-tingling horror, Deadman’s Road is your ride to hell, in which a vengeful shaman curses a town by conjuring a seemingly unstoppable army of the undead; an ill-advised shortcut leads to a bees’ nest of terror; a man stands condemned, not for murdering his wife but for raising the Lovecraftian horror that killed her; a woman is attacked by werewolves and left for dead in a ghost town; and a mining camp faces off with a horde of cannibalistic fiends.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Joe R. Lansdale is the undisputed master of East Texas gothic horror, and his dime novel sensibilities make this marriage of Westerns and horror stories a perfect fit. Deadman’s Road features Lansdale’s trademark dark humor and skin-crawling mastery of description, steeping these stories in both historical detail and stomach-churning intensity.”

    San Francisco Book Review

  • “Reverend Jebediah Mercer rides through the haunted backwoods of post–Civil War Texas, battling werewolves and eldritch horrors in the name of his cruel and distant Old Testament God in five creepy, gory, and dark pulpy yarns by Southern horror author Lansdale. In ‘Dead in the West,’ Mercer fights zombies, a stereotypical ‘Indian curse,’ and his own damaged faith, a good bit of pulpy fun spun around a nougat of bitter religion. In ‘Deadman’s Road,’ the mercenary preacher hunts down a ghoul on a haunted stretch of road; ‘The Dark Down There’ pits him and a boisterous, sensual ex-cook against an army of kobolds; and in ‘The Crawling Sky’ he tackles an eldritch monster.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “It’s the mixture of horror, humor, and action elements that makes this collection a must-read for fans of dark literature.”
